Our mission is to make learning accessible to all, so to help us achieve that goal we launched an internship programme, opening up opportunities for people who dream big and want to change the world.

We’re open to a broad candidate pool - you might be someone looking for a total career change, returning to work after a break, a recent graduate or someone who just wants to dive into something new and make an impact.

What we’re looking for is someone who cares about our mission, wants to make a real impact on the world of education and has a strong commitment to learn about all things related to books, content usage and publishing.

What you’ll get:

Why should you choose Perlego? At Perlego we believe in the key role you will play to achieve our shared mission. You'll belong to a culture of dreamers, team players and avid learners with a flexible, value-based approach. Here, you can become your best self, and through your talent, make a real impact in the world of education.

What you’ll learn:

  • Trends driving the global education industry
  • How to juggle competing priorities in a rapidly scaling start-up
  • How to own and deliver complex projects
  • How to work in an Agile environment
  • How to drive change in business

What we do

At Perlego, there are 100 of us working hard to make education accessible to all. In this digital age, we believe that anyone should be able to learn anything at any time. Knowledge should be more accessible, not locked behind sky-high price tags.

Over the past 5 years, our goal has been to support students across the UK & Europe to access quality books. The next stage of Perlego is twofold: 1) expand our support to students globally, and 2) build a product that goes beyond the book, a platform that helps students study smarter and more effectively.
